Can't Blondes Have Fun -- AND Be Smart?

Some folks are so prejudiced against blondes. Have you noticed?  People make fun of blondes and act like blondes can’t be intelligent or even somewhat smart.
Society frowns on jokes showing prejudices – except when it comes to blondes. It’s not politically correct to tell stories and jokes about religion, sex, ethnicity, age or color, unless, of course, that color is blonde.
I’m here to defend blondes. I am blonde. Or at least I was the last time I saw my roots. Sure, the color is a very dirty, dishwater, almost brown-and-mostly-gray blonde, but it is a blonde of sorts.

Okay, so it's many sorts of blonde. There’s quite a variety of colors and shades in that mixture now.

But back to my original point. Why do so many people think blondes can’t be smart? There are blonde scientists, teachers, lawyers, engineers, authors, doctors, etc.

I’m blonde. I can read and write. I’ve got a law degree. I know how to use a computer. Except when the computer is malfunctioning.

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not savvy enough to figure out how to fix any kind of problem if the computer is on the blink, and, recently, my computer was, in fact, on the blink. It totally blinked out.

The manufacturer sent a box for me to use to return the computer and said it might take up to two weeks to repair. Two weeks? I’m lost without a computer. How in the world would I survive for two weeks?

Nevertheless, I dropped off the computer at the designated shipping place and inside the designated shipping box.

Less than 48 hours later, it was there on our doorstep!

That’s because I had shipped it right back to myself!!!!

Now, why is it that some folks think blondes aren’t so smart?


Sherry at the computer!

Hi Sherry,

Thanks for your visit and comment at It Strikes Me Funny. Without trying too hard, I can recall the fresh (really lovely) smell of clothes stacked in my mother's laundry basket - from the 1950s and '60s. Nothing quite like it.

You have an excellent website (great post today, by the way) and Grandson Harrison (I like that name!) is a cutie.

This made me laugh loud Sherry! But I suspect that mailing the computer back to you was more of a "everyday, stressed out" reason than just being blonde.

Oh dear! haha!!! (of course, I'm laughing with you...that is, if you are laughing :o) That really sounds like something I would do...and I am a brunette...well, except for these unruly grey and white hairs that insist on replicating themselves!

Blessings & Aloha!
Thanks so much my friend for stopping by! I hope to get a post up this week... finally!
